Synthetic Specialty Esters


Synthetic Specialty Esters
Biodegradable fluids belong to this group of products, which combine excellent hydrolytic stability, outstanding wetting- and good lubrication properties. This gives our esters a leading edge over other products for the formulation of fluids used in the metal industry. Of special interest are the following products :

Typical properties of these esters are: Excellent wetting properties, low tendency to hydrolyse due to their special molecular design. In addition most of them are not agressive to sealant materials.
Typical end uses are in chemicals for construction and fluids for the metal industry as well as mould release agents.

Among the standard products are 2EH-oleate-palmitate-stearate esters, cocoates and short chain esters for hydrolytical stability.

Our pentaerythritol-esters are known for their high flashpoints and low Iodine values. They exhibit excellent lubrication properties, also at high temperatures and biodegrade rapidly such as our other esters.

Neutral self emulsifying Ester
The product TE 2000N is self emulsifying without the addition of tensides. When blended with water up to a certain concentration, the viscosity increases but the solutions remain clear.

Our self emulsifying esters show excellent lubrication properties and display great resistance to hydrolysis due to their molecular design. Typical applications are in mould release agents, drawing-, rolling- and waterbased stamping and forming fluids as well as lubrication enhancers for watermiscible metalworking fluids.

Acid-functional self emulsifying Esters
All esters of this group are acid functional and can be neutralized to form soaps. They will then be self emulsifying without addition of tensides.

As with the neutral types they exhibit excellent lubrication properties and have great stability against hydrolysis due to their molecular structure. These esters have a residual functional acid group. When used in metalworking fluids where increased corrosion resistance is desired, alkaline neutralisation is necessary.

Esti Chem Producer of Specialty Esters
More specialty esters for a number of additional applications are developed and sold by Esti Chem A/S a subsidiary of ACL. More information is available under
